Re: What do you know about palm oil?

I was looking into this myself, and I discovered it's high in saturated fats and destructive to habitats in the rainforest where they clear cut for this product. Coconut oil at the moment is probably better for you and I have found it easy to obtain organic sources. Some sources: http://kids.mongaba...

Re: Why I love my standing desk!

why not use a Pilates or Yoga ball instead creating more waste by buying more? Duh! In my original post, I mentioned that an "exercise ball" had been my office chair but was causing the same problems of every other chair, so getting another one would kind of be like healing a knife wound ...

Toiletries Help

It's been two months now of the best lifestyle I have ever chosen! However, despite being able to easily find razors, deodorant, toothpaste, etc. it's been a real challenge finding hairdye that is not Henna, that fits my requirements. I went gray as a mule at 16 yrs and I work in the food and bevera...

Re: Fatty lumps growing on my doggie

Pepper can be dangerous for dogs. A lot of spices can cause acute pancreatitis. There's also breeds that are prone to prancreatitis such as miniature schnauzers.

Re: Do I need to supplement saturated fat?

Saturated fat is bad for you.

You need mono and polyunsaturated. I found some macademia nut oil with 11 grams of mono and soooooooooooooooo delicious. Look for it!

Re: The Organic Food Myths

An important factor with organic crops often overlooked is food security. Chemical fertilizers come from oil, oil is becoming more expensive and it is running out. Even before BP, oil wasn't doing favor for the environment, nor was the wash off of chemical fertilizers. Oil will run out. Once a fiel...

Re: The Organic Food Myths

Open for discussion, but I'm finding a lot of evidence suggesting that the environmental aspect is a huge myth. Prior to 1970, all crops were organic and people starved, and food was healthier? Unhealthier? GM food is modified for heartiness, and health. How is it bad? Now that most food is not org...
